“Learn to Curls” at the Milwaukee Curling Club are the perfect way to introduce yourself to this fantastic winter sport. These two hour sessions will take you from off the street to game ready in just two hours.
We recommend you arrive about 15 minutes before the session to register, prepare your equipment and tour our brand new club. The new club is just as cool as the old one so you better be ready for temperatures of about 40 degrees. In addition to a light coat or sweater, wear comfortable shoes. Light weight hiking or tennis shoes will work just fine for your first expedition curling.
Once your gear is ready we’ll send you right on the ice. You’ll get a feel for the ice surface, which isn’t anything like ice skating, and we’ll show you around a sheet of curling ice.
Before too long we’ll show you how to deliver a stone, the ins and outs of sweeping, scoring and strategy. Those are a few of the many aspects that make curling fun and great exercise. After about one hour of the basics, we’ll divide into teams of four and scrimmage against the other participants in the “learn to curl” session.
Two hours after it starts you’ll be ready for another great curling tradition, the post game camaraderie. You’ll visit for a while and tell war stories while we give you information on joining the brand new Milwaukee Curling Club.
